Knee & Hip
Hips and knees are essential to support the weight of our body during standing, walking and running activities. Because they bear our full body weight, hips and knees are especially susceptible to injury and arthritis.
Hip and knee problems are some of the most common reasons patients visit University Orthopaedic Clinic & Spine Center. Hip function is often compromised by arthritis, fracture, osteoporosis, or deformity. Knees are susceptible to ACL and other ligament tears, fractures, trauma, sprains/strains and arthritis.
